UPDATE: The Salvation Army is hoping generous Oklahomans will come to their aid by Saturday at 4 p.m.

So far, the agency still needs gifts for 400 angels.

One of the biggest needs is clothes for boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 14-years-old.

The deadline to return gifts was already extended since over 1,500 angels had not been returned.

Donations are being accepted until 4 p.m. at Plaza Mayor at the Crossroads, 7000 Crossroads Boulevard, Oklahoma City, OK 73149.

 

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command’s Angel Trees at Penn Square Mall and Quail Springs Mall will close tonight (12/11/14) at the end of business. As of December 10, 1,600 Angels had not been returned.

Due to this high number, the deadline to return Angel Tree gifts has been extended until December 13 at 4 p.m. Donors should bring their gifts to Plaza Mayor at the Crossroads, 7000 Crossroads Boulevard, Oklahoma City, OK 73149 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Salvation Army’s distribution center is located on the east side of the mall, in the space formerly occupied by Montgomery Wards.

On average, 15 to 20 percent of Angels are not returned because they are lost or forgotten. The Salvation Army is in need of new, unwrapped toys and clothing items to fill these Angels, ages 6-14, this Christmas. Toy and clothing donations may also be brought to Plaza Mayor at the Crossroads until December 13.

For questions on how you can help ensure no child is forgotten this Christmas, please contact Major Charlotte Gargis at 405-246-1113 or charlotte_gargis@uss.salvationarmy.org .

Your donation will bring hope to a family this Christmas.
